On July 8, 2019, Mislatel was renamed as "Dito Telecommunity". Dito was derived from the Filipino word for "here", which is a response to the stakeholders' question on where they plan to set up a firm that would provide a "world class service" with "here" referring to the Philippines, the country where Dito Telcommunity is based in.

The agreement with the military contains the same provisions signed by the two incumbent telcos with “notable exception that additional provisions were provided pertaining to commitments of Dito to national security.”
